Implementing a Collaborative Medical Humanities Minor

The implementation of an interdisciplinary medical humanities minor for undergraduates.

This proposal aims to implement a collaborative, cross-campus Medical Humanities Minor at Georgetown and to expand the Medical Humanities Initiative (funded by a NEH Humanities Connections Planning Grant). Funded outcomes will be an interdisciplinary Medical Humanities undergraduate minor featuring Main/Medical faculty team-taught courses, experiential learning, and researched Capstone, as well as a cross-campus Medical Humanities Program with Student Research Fellowships, Medical Humanities Colloquium (open to the public), open-access Medical Humanities digital platform, and an international Medical Humanities Symposium. We aim to cultivate meaningful partnerships across campuses, equip students with a breadth of humanistic tools, contribute to scholarship in the field of medical humanities, enhance the well-being of pre-health students, and change the patient/clinician encounter from a grassroots level, by shaping the training of health care professionals at a critical stage.
